Our school is a relatively small school set in the quiet village of Levens. We have 73 children on roll aged between 4-11 years, organised into three classes. Since September 2016, we have introduced nursery provision. See our nursery page for more information.
Our children are organised into three separate mixed-age classes; Bowfell, Skiddaw and Scafell. Due to fluctuating numbers in each cohort, the class structure changes year on year. For the academic year 2016-7 our class organisation is:
Bowfell: 2 part-time nursery children (mornings only)
2o Reception and year 1 children
Bowfell class is taught by Miss Addy and supported by two full time teaching assistants, Mrs Cattermole and Mrs Hayes.
Skiddaw: 28 Year 2,3 and 4 children.
This class is taught by Mrs Wadey and supported every morning by our senior teaching assistant, Mrs Mason.
Scafell: 26 Year 5 and 6 children.
Taught by Mrs Farraday and Mrs Craggs.
Take a look at our class pages to find out more. These can be found in the pupils section of our website.
Children arrive in school at 8.35am through the front entrance and settle quickly into a morning task in their classrooms. Registration takes place at 8.45am.
All the children enjoy breaktime between 10.20am and 10.40am on the main playground or in Bowfell’s outdoor area.
Each morning we have an assembly or collective worship in the school hall. Every Friday we have a celebratory ‘Good Work Assembly’ to share our learning and read out the names of children who have been recognised for doing something wonderful from our Golden Book. Parents and family members are invited to join us on the last Friday of every month at 2.30pm.
Infant lunch begins at 11.45am and our nursery children are collected from Bowfell’s class door. Key Stage 2 children’s lunchtime begins at 12. The children eat in our dining hall and many choose to have a hot dinner.
Our afternoon session begins at 1pm and school closes for the day at 3pm. Parents come into school playground to greet the children and enjoy the opportunity to talk to class teachers, if necessary, at the end of the day. Many of our children enjoy attending YoYo Club which provides after-school care for our working families. Alternatively, we also offer a range of after-school extra-curricular activities for the children to enjoy around the year.
